In the light of the demise of Ilford (and - among many other things their
being somewhat caught off-guard by the much more rapid decline in film use
over the last year) Kodak has also responded in time for Photokina that film
sales dropped by 50% more than their (or most other manufacturers)
projections over the same time period.

Film IS going very very quickly

Even an M toting film shooting dinosaur like Bill Allard is finding he is
having to go digital....
